• Brock Lesnar Could Capture The Universal Championship Tonight On RAW
Brock Lesnar is set to cash-in his Money In The Bank contract on tonight’s RAW on Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship.
Below is what WWE posted about this:
Heyman announces Lesnar will cash in on Rollins this Monday
“After Brock Lesnar learned about the one-year clause in the Money in the Bank contract, the question on everyone’s mind was when The Beast would make his move. Now, Paul Heyman has put the matter to rest: It’s happening this week, and it’s happening against Universal Champion Seth Rollins.
Following the McMahon family’s opening of an executive review to determine Lesnar’s punishment for “disrespecting” the Money in the Bank contract, Paul Heyman went on the offensive, declaring that his client would take a proactive rather than reactive strategy and would cash in on Rollins this Monday.

There is still some suspense at play here. Heyman did not specify when The Beast would be cashing in, only that it would occur between the hours of 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET, “at a time of [Lesnar’s] choosing.” Still, that doesn’t mean the title is Brock’s for the taking. Rollins is one of the only men to crack the code of defeating Lesnar, and with the champion at least having some specifics to work with, his chances of a repeat are higher than Heyman and Lesnar are likely willing to admit.”
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, there’s a chance that Lesnar could walk out of tonight’s RAW as the new Universal Champion (and the first and only 3 time Universal Champion):
“He’s winding up with the championship by the end of the night. I just don’t know which one. Each one of them does have an opponent [at Super ShowDown]. Seth Rollins does have Baron Corbin. Kofi Kingston does have Dolph Ziggler. I don’t think anyone will cry if either of those matches are changed.
Obviously the Dolph Ziggler match with Kofi Kingston was not planned to be changed because they wouldn’t have done all of this just to do it they wouldn’t have brought him back. Corbin feels like it was something thrown together at the last minute even though they were going to go in that direction.
You know they’re flying by the seat of their pants.”
Lesnar is scheduled to work the WWE Super ShowDown PPV this Friday, but he doesn’t have an opponent yet. So there’s a possibility that Lesnar could win the Title tonight.
